Remainder by MorganLaurence
Remainder
A piece titled Remainder.
It's a relief to have overcome my fear of putting "pen to paper" - charcoal.

I haven't felt very valid and the practice of Art scares me witless at times. Infrequently meeting a stranger I'll exclaim I'm an Artist. But even on that rare occasion I don't believe what it is I'm proffering. As a statement I believe it contains falsities and having made it I further muddy my ability and comfort in carrying out artistic activity. Drawing.

A sports coach and close friend - perhaps unbeknownst to her, has me slowly challenging my behaviours both socially and mentally. This includes trying not to constantly apologise and inwardly validating my thoughts and opinions.

My Art is something that I'm fearful sharing.
It feels like the one tangible thing I achieve in a given time frame and I feel genuinely embarrassed often to reveal the low yield and perceived "value" of the fruits of my labour.

I have 11 days left of my year's BeardCrisis.
You doubtlessly will be aware of my journey with my growth and we are within sight of the end goal. My year is almost up and my face and jawline shall be returned to me.
Christmas is an expensive time for us all but if you are in a position to help Crisis support the UK's homeless you could make a real difference to the Christmas of someone who is in most need of our giving.

Can you spare 2 minutes to text 'BERM83 £2' , 'BERM83 £5' OR 'BERM83 £10' to 70070 (to sponsor the amount within the text)

Or are you able to visit www.justgiving.com/beardcrisis

Merry Christmas everyone x

Alfie Ordinary by MorganLaurence
Alfie Ordinary
A drawing of a local Drag Artist. (updated image quality)

Medium: Charcoal
Size: 16 x 20 inches

I chose Alfie as my subject due to his strong look.
I've only been lucky enough to see him live once in Chichester but had a front row seat and ate up his performance

Laurence Morgan
Artist | Hobbyist | Traditional Art
United Kingdom
My journey with art started as a child, going through to my teens with Pottery classes. It consisted less of wheel work but more so free play and within the small group it felt very much like I was adventuring. In 1996 aged twelve I acquired a traumatic brain injury which still impacts me greatly. The focus in recovery was very much learning to use every muscle in my body and communication - initially without speech. I had to learn to solely use my non dominant hand and arm.

Art was farthest from my mind in my mid twenties when I attended an art group. I needed interaction and to get out of the house. Owing I believe to the precision and concentration involved in merely holding a pencil and then marking paper my art quickly progressed and it became "stylised" by my difficulty presented from the quickly fatigued control of my hand and arm. For example creating obstacles to drawing solid lines.

I am untrained, and uncertain of what I intend when I start the process but I will find beauty, or gain intrigue with all my muses. An expression, a pose, an aura! I find beauty in life and people fascinate me. Everyone has a beauty and I love it if I can capture an emotion or wonderful thought.
